Module 30 Year Life: What Does it Mean and is it Predictable/Achievable?

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    We define what we mean by a 30-year module life and the testing protocol that we believe is involved in achieving such a prediction. However, we do not believe that a universal test (or series of tests) will allow for such a prediction to be made.
